Well, lucky for me I'll only have to suffer two schoolings before I'm out of the tournament, eh? ;)

A great improvement is that the points you can win are closer together. If the number 1 wins twice the points number 2 wins, it is just less fun.

****Spring Tournament Brackets are up****

 

The Brackets for the Spring 2015 Double Elimination Open Tournament are available now.
 
The first week (ofcourse) will only see games in the Premier bracket. The Tournament will last approximately 12 weeks.

Games can be arranged as soon as TC opens games topics for each game (we aim for Friday 20 February). So that gives you some extra time to visit the Springstakes 2015 betting

 

We wish all the participants and followers much fun and great matches

****Spring Tournament has started****

 

We have opened the gametopics for te First games in the Premier Bracket. This means you can now start arranging your game, and start playing. We opened it today so that participants can also use this weekend for their games. Participants can start playing as of now (please arrange / announce it in the game topic before starting the match).
 
There are some rules for arranging games so please check Rules. Also pay attention to the Policy about sportsmanlike behavior on the battlefield as well as in this forum.
 
Important for arranging games:

  • Each round post at least 3 valid time slots in which you can play in the forum topic corresponding to your game number BEFORE Tuesday 23.59 GMT;
  • Use the 24 hour clock and all times must be in GMT (Greenwich Mean Time);
  • The First 3 proposed time slots cannot be between 00.00 GMT and 06.00 GMT see Rules for exceptions);
  • Each of the First 3 proposed time slots consist of at least a 2 hour window to start the game. For example, proposing Tuesday 20.00-22.00 GMT would mean a player is available to start a game at 20.00GMT, and his latest availability to start is 22.00 GMT.

Some players have a bye in the first round so can sit back. But please keep checking the forum, because as soon as the topic for your next round match is opened you can start arranging (and then playing).
 
Also remember that this is a Double Elimination Style tournament, meaning that if you lose one game you are not out of the tournament. You will then enter the Rehabilitation Bracket and still have the chance to win it all!

Thusfar 5 matches have been played in the first round of the Premier Bracket.
 
The Maestro defeated newcomer noblevillain in a very close match. D3 winner cflag beat aman35. Napoleon 1er had a victory over our firstever participant from Africa, josephwhite. In another greek battle Aris1970 won against the debuting warriorsss. The Prof and gatos13 battled to a draw and will have their rematch Friday.
 

Since this is a double elimination tournament all participants are still in this.

 

We welcome the winners to Round 2 of the Premier Bracket

The others will be in Round 1 of Rehabilitation Bracket

 

Today will see at least 2 matches:

Späher vs TheOptician 
spyros77 vs egw197077

 

Since it is Tuesday, please beware of tonight's curfew (23.59 GMT) for those who have not yet posted 3 valid timeslots. The Springstakes will close at that same time tonight as well, so place your bets now. 

 

Wednesday will see the opening of gametopics for next round matches (if possible).

***** Very Important Notice*****

 TODAY: CURFEW AT 2359 GMT

 

A lot of players have already posted valid time slots for game arrangements, but there are still some players that have not. According to the rules every player must post 3 valid timeslots before 2359 GMT tonight.

 

Not providing (at least) these 3 timeslots will have negative effects for these players. One of those effects being that your opponent (who did provide 3 valid timeslots) can propose an additional timeslot for either SATURDAY or SUNDAY, which will be used in case no game is arranged until curfew time of Friday 23.59 GMT.  See Rules.

 

So please all be sure to post 3 valid time slots before 2359GMT tonight.

February 24th and 25th will from now on be national holidays in Greece, as these dates will be remembered for generations as the dates that SEVEN out of SEVEN (edited as I clearly can't count) matches were won in the Spring Tournament.
 
It all started with gorgsari scoring the upset victory over Astros, followed by spyros77 beating fellow Greek egw197077. Wednesday was the top day with 5 more Greek victories: morias sent scottrussia's army to Siberia, B.E.M. HCS defeated chefwd76, Zoografos beat the greek (goddess?) Kambia, KARAISKAKIS continued his winning streak against fellow Greek JohnK.1980 and finally MIMIS69 winning his game against General Eshe.
 
So let's all get an Ouzo...

****Take advantage of the extra weekend!!!!****


With many first round games already finished we want to point out that a lot of next round matchtopics (Premier Bracket and Rehabilitation Bracket) have been opened by us already, so that means you can start proposing time slots and arrange your game. Games can be played immediate after that, so there is no need to wait.

 

Take advantage of this great opportunity, because the longer you wait the tighter the schedule (and the rules) get.

And I welcome you back....this is just great news.

 

And to celebrate it:  :P   :wub:  -_-   :D   :blink:  :D  ;)

 

 

PS. The only bad thing is that I just noticed there is a maximum on the emoticons you are now allowed to use in a post. I never noticed that before but then again I never used many.

 

However....I hope that Dspy can function at 100% with that limitation
